Los cuartos con vista al mar cuentan con excelente vista y balcones amplios, el mar queda muy cerca de las habitaciones, las habitaciones no están mal solo que en mi estancia no contábamos con agua caliente y se batallaba en bajarle al baño ya que el agua se iba por ratos largos

Fernando is wonderful! The drinks on the beach were delicious. I highly recommend the fresh passion fruit margarita. The property is very small and there aren’t any amenities so bring your own toiletries.

This hotel was sadly disappointing. If it wasn’t for the warm staff, I would give it 1-star. We showed up two hours after check in to find that the room with the ocean view we reserved was flooded. There were leaks in the ceiling. We were moved temporarily into a garden room which was very dark and small for 3 people. The room we originally booked was given to another group and we were promised a food and drink credit for the price difference which we didn’t receive. Eventually we got a discount per night on the room and stayed in another Room for the remainder of the stay. The room service didn’t come for 2 nights out of 4 and the bugs were bad. Worms and roaches :( they didn’t replace the water from the previous guests and the floors were not very clean. I wish I didn’t have to review this place, but it’s a warning if you’re looking a For a special experience.

Terrible hotel - flooded rooms and gross stains
This hotel was absolutely terrible! The entire time we were there (4 nights) our room was flooding. We had about 4 towels on the ground at all times trying to soak up the water, but it wasn’t even helping because the towels would just become sopping wet. We talked to the front desk when the problem first started and they said there was nothing they could do. On top of it, our room was gross in general. There were blood stains on all 4 of the curtains, stains on the bed sheets and what looked to be mold in the shower. The hotel was extremely stingy about towels, even though we absolutely needed them in our room to soak up the water. It was pulling teeth to get any extras from them. Our friends stayed in the penthouse suite and also had issues with flooding... and one of them actually slipped and fell because of it. I have never been so disappointed in a hotel in my life.

The staff at Playa Canek is so helpful and friendly! The spot is right on the beach and in the middle of the busy parts of Tulum. If you want a spot that gets you right in the middle of the action, Playa Canek is your place. Also, be sure to say "Hi!" to Fernando! He took great care of us!

Hot night...
To all future stayers FYI AC's are controlled and only work from 8pm-7am.. Needless to say that ours wasn't working! We asked the staff and didn't do much other than give us a standing fan.. Following morning a staff member came and fixed the issue; he even stated "So sorry guys, the night staff should have called me last night and I would of came". Night staff just came and tried to convince us that it wasnt too hot, an the fan would cool it down.. it just wasn't a nice night. Other than that, beach acces was great, food was great freshly cooked.

Perfect for the Minimalist
Property is perfectly tucked into a natural scape of trees with immediate toes in the sand access to the beach where you can soak up hours of ocean views and open breeze. Eco-friendly use of water and utilities. The rooms have a minimalistic vibe containing only the essentials so don’t expect a tv, telephone, refrigerators, microwaves, etc. We never really had “hot” water but you honestly don’t need it when you are freshening up at any point of your stay because it is quite hot outside and a luke warm/cool shower is quite refreshing at anytime of the day. The A/C is managed to run 8pm-7am which mirrors when guests are most likely to be in their room and it worked perfectly. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The property grounds were clean and neat. The beach beds, cushions, and umbrellas, however were torn and stained so I avoided using and enjoyed my beach towel and the umbrella they will provide. Beachside breakfast and food was good and the drinks did not disappoint. It is a safe area and not as congested as other parts of the strip. You are also within walking distance to more restaurants and bars if you would like to venture off the property. I hope this never becomes another commercial resort and remains authentic to the culture of the city and people. Perfect stay for me and I can only see this property getting better with every season.
